MYKITA  –  Handmade designer optical eyewear and vintage glasses

MYKITA’s in-house workshop in Berlin has been supplying handmade designer optical eyewear and vintage glasses for the high-end segment since 2003.

The creative core behind the brand are its four founders Moritz Krüger, Philipp Haffmans, Daniel Haffmans and Harald Gottschling.

A clear design signature coupled with excellent product quality and a huge potential for innovation have helped make MYKITA a major name on the international eyewear market. The sunglasses and Spectacles are made out of stainless steel and acetat.

MYKITA’s patented hinge concepts have given the brand a unique identity. The frame designs are avant-garde, individual and unmistakable thanks to their clear handwriting.

A key factor in the company’s success is its integrated business philosophy, which is lived and fostered in all areas.

All steps are united under a single roof at the MYKITA Headquarter in the heart of Berlin: from original design to production and marketing.

The dedicated workshop combines cutting-edge materials with high-tech component production and traditional hand assembly.

All glasses and spectacles of this Designer Eyewear are made in Germany.

The Name

The name MYKITA is derived from “Kita” (a common abbreviation for Kindertagesstätte) and is a reference to the firm’s first premises in a former day nursery.

The Story

MYKITA made its debut on the eyewear market in 2004 with COLLECTION NO1.

This metal frame collection metal frame collection boasts not only innovative and functional design, but also MYKITA’s patented hinge that removes the need for awk- ward screws and soldering. The individual frame elements are cut out of thin stainless sheet steel before being manually shaped in a series of separate steps.

Ultra light weight and an array of configuration options enabling adaptation to individual face forms ensure a superior standard of comfort and wearability.
